This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brooklyn version. This brew is the result of the long friendship of Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver and Schneider brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler. Garrett had always admired the delicate balance of flavors in Schneider Weisse, while Hans-Peter had long enjoyed the effusive hop character of Brooklyn East India Pale Ale and BLAST! Garrett's concept for the collaboration was that each brewmaster would brew essentially the same pale, hoppy weissbock in the other's brewery, but with different hopping to reflect the local hop flavor.

Dry-hopped w/ American Amarillo and Palisade.

Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

A collaboration between two solid brewers that somewhat alters/updates a classic style? I'm in. This stuff pours a cloudy sunrise amber-brass topped by over a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, dry wheat, light clove (I think), and a couple twists of orange. The taste brings in more of the same, with a slightly fresher wheat component and a bit more clove. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I wasn't the biggest fan of this stuff. It's not really bad, per se, just not my cup o' tea, what with the grassy hops not really fully melding with the mild citrus and wheat. I dunno, something like that...
